What You Can Expect

City Sightseeing Aveiro Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Visit Aveiro on board of this Hop-on Hop off Bus

Sat halfway between the Portuguese cities of Porto and Coimbra, Aveiro is an old port town with charm and classic sights aplenty. Explore the town at your own pace on a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus tour! Simply step on board this City Sightseeing open-top, double-decker bus, and hop on and off wherever you want. Your sightseeing tour has eleven conveniently located stops around town so you can take a stroll around Aveiro’s picturesque canals to see the colorful moliceiros (Portuguese boats) bobbing on the water, or visit attractions like Mercado do Peixe independently.

In between hopping and off, sit back and enjoy the ride, admiring the pretty canals and bridges that have made the town become known as the Venice of Portugal. Aveiro’s architecture is noteworthy, too, so look out for the elegant house front decorated with azulejos (the town’s distinctive blue-and-white tiles) as you travel around town.

With your ticket, you can remain on the bus for an entire loop (roughly 1.5 hours) as you listen to the entertaining audio commentary, or, you can hop on and off at any of the eleven stops around town to explore Aveiro’s many delights. Your ticket is valid for a full 24 hours from the time of first use.
